Things are hotting up in the Primeira Liga title race and although Sporting CP are second, they are the team in full control. They only trail Benfica on head-to-head record but have a chance to get their own back in a few weeks. More importantly, Sporting CP have a game in hand on their local and title rivals, so winning all of their games between now and the season would see them finish six points clear. Of course, it won’t be as straightforward as that, but Sporting CP have proven themselves tough to beat. The Benfica loss was one of just two defeats Sporting CP have suffered in the league this season, alongside a draw and 18 wins. Since that last defeat to Vitoria in December, Sporting CP have won eight consecutive matches, including the last three scoring 15 goals with none conceded.

Rio Ave, meanwhile, are struggling as part of a tight relegation battle. They go into this round of fixtures in the relegation play-off spot, ranked below Estoril and Estrela da Amadora on a mini-group head-to-head. There is still a long way to go though and, as we mentioned, it’s tight. Just 10 points separated eighth-placed Famalicao and Vizela who sit bottom of the table. If we narrow the gap, Rio Ave could climb as high as 11th if they were to pull off a shock win and other results this weekend went their way. They did win in their previous home league game, but that has been their sole victory in their last six, including a 2-1 defeat against Famalicao last time out.

Sporting CP have a good recent record against Rio Ave, winning the past five all without conceding a goal. They haven’t lost to Rio Ave in the league since the 2019/20 season.

Scoreline prediction: Rio Ave 0-2 Sporting CP
